This looks like a great tool to use in conjunction with Amazon’s price drop policy… Drop by
AmazonCreditsYou.com (see below), enter the details of your purchase, and let them do the hard work of monitoring the price on the item that you just bought. If it drops within the next thirty days, they’ll shoot you an e-mail. Then you just have to hop on over to Amazon.com (or follow the link in the e-mail) and make your claim. I haven’t used it yet, but it looks easy… You just have to enter the ISBN or ASIN (available in the item description), the price, the date you purchased it, and an e-mail address for them to contact you if the price drops. Looks pretty useful. When used in conjunction with Amabuddy, there’s no excuse for not getting the best possible deal.

Update: AmazonCreditsYou.com no longer exists.
Here are instructions for getting your refund the old-fashioned way…
(1) Visit “Your Account” and look at all invoices from the past thirty days.
(2) Click on the item names to pull up the current item description/price and compare to the price that you paid.
(3) If you paid more than the current price, copy down the order number and go to:
(4) Check of the item(s) in question and then click the e-mail button. Select “Refund Inquiry” as your subject.
(5) In the body of the message, tell them that the price dropped and that you want to be credited for the difference. It might help to mention the item name as well as old and new price, but I’m not sure that’s entirely is necessary.
That’s it. As our five year old is fond of saying: “Easy-peesy, lemon squeezy!”
